Welcome To The Bothy

Church Square, St Andrews

The Bothy is a quintessential Scottish bolthole, tucked away from the throng of the busy thoroughfares of St Andrews and nestled in a cosy corner of Church Square.

With a menu driven by provenance and passion, you can always expect to find seasonal Scottish produce at the heart of our dishes. No dinner is complete without a dram, so you can also expect to find a specially selected drinks menu, packed full of Scottish whisky, gins, locally distilled spirits and more.

When the Scottish sun graces us with her presence, The Bothy External Garden is our quiet and quaint outdoor space. It’s the perfect spot for a light lunch or refreshing G&T whilst watching the world go by.

Our Menus

Our menus are changed regularly to reflect the changing seasons and the produce which is available to our Head Chef. Our ingredients are sourced from all over Scotland, with pork belly from the rolling Ayrshire hills, to cheese from the beautiful Isle Of Arran.

There is bowls and treats available for our well behaved furry friends and also a beautiful outside area for them to enjoy the sunshine!

“The Bothy feels a little like home, it’s heavenly. The interiors combine elements of rustic charm which sit comfortably alongside vibrant floral patterns and textiles. Over the gentle clinking of glasses, the warm and comforting aroma of the kitchen floats out to welcome you in with open arms.”
